“Inspired by the best-selling series by Janette Oke”

The Dance is the third installment in the When Calls the Heart series, which focuses on the story of young Elizabeth, a young woman of privilege who has decided to make her way to the wilds in her dream of becoming a teacher. In the first two movies, she braved the challenges of a life away from the city, learned of a mysterious aunt who had taken a similar path in life, and met a handsome yet infuriating mounty who adds a hint of both romance and frustration to her daily life.

As The Dance begins, Elizabeth has finally started to settle into her new home of Coal Valley, a small mining town that has seen more than its fair share of tragedy. She’s comfortable with the people and the children, as well as the pace of life. But a new influx of single miners – hired to replace those lost in a tragic accident – shakes the town up in more ways than one. Some of the widows have caught the eyes of the new men in town, and their children aren’t all willing to entertain the idea of a new man in their lives. More concerning still, items of value have begun to turn up missing, and mounty Jack has one man in particular as a suspect.

Of course, the main idea of the story centers around Elizabeth herself, and how she deals with the questions the children have, as well as doing her part to make things just a little easier for the widows – especially a heavily pregnant one who has many complications. One of the new miners is particularly charming to Elizabeth in particular, setting the scene for some jealous encounters between him and Jack – as well as some soul searching on the parts of Elizabeth and Jack, as they try to decide if the future is one where they are together or apart.

When Calls the Heart: The Dance is a rather sweet historical tale that offers lighthearted fun and a hint of romance as Jack and Elizabeth work through just what their relationship will be. It is completely safe for viewers of all ages (my eight year daughter loved it), and a great story for the whole family to enjoy together. Fans of Janette Oke’s books will find an adaptation of her books that does justice to her vision.
